Fake Weddings + Replichroming.

falsi pir-4This weekend, I was invited by the Tourism Board of Supetar (island of Brač) to photograph a fake wedding. It was, actually, a fake traditional wedding, making it even more interesting to watch, specially because I was never told much about the whole event, and conversations went like “So… who’s getting married?”, “Oh Mirko, nobody! Now, let’s go get the bride!!”. I was confused.

In the end, this huge celebration was organized by local people in order to celebrate something, that I was never quite certain about, but I’ll just assume that life is a good thing to celebrate. Summer is coming, the sea is getting warmer and having friends, family and health are a good thing to brag about. So they (we) did.

Enjoy.

 

Since you made it so far, I’ll tell you that some pics were made using the base of Replichrome presets, lovely stuff!

Listening, however, was a more difficult task, since their dialect –Čakavski or Chakavsky– was not the easiest thing to understand for a super novice in easter european languages.

However, the weather wasn’t the best and even though many, many chilean-croatians come from the Island of Brač, at the beginning was no easy task to trace families from which I had no last names, addresses or ways to find them but eventually I got my way around the island, and maybe my broken grammar, thick accent (to my great shame) and objectives were made very clear to most of the people. I’m not even halfway to acquire the material I want to, but at least I’m on my way. Continue reading
